Fred,

Boobies can be just as easily tied on normal low-water hooks. They still float like corks and are very easy to tie. All you need to do is simply figure-8 your tying thread over the center of the foam cylinder to form the boobies after the fly is tied. Put a little super glue or polyurethane glue on the thread after it is tied off, and go fishing. Tie them in any color you want, although Kush assured me that ones with yellow boobies and black wings caught more fish.
